"Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind. Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good." (1 Peter 2:1-3 NIVUK)  Spring-time is often when people have a good clear out. This passage lists specific attitudes we cannot afford to give "house-room." But, as the LORD sweeps us clean of such things through the power of His Holy Spirit, they must be replaced by that which is good – "pure spiritual milk." The old adage says, "You are what you eat!" Make sure, then, it is God’s Word and way that you crave, for, in turn, what we believe determines how we behave.
